Chocolate Chip Scones


I like trying new recipes,

even complicated ones...

But sometimes,

like tonight,





I need the tried and true.





The kind of recipe I know by heart.




I am really missing my kids.

They are with their Nana and Papa for the week, and I'm lonely for them.

So I do what I love doing for them when they are here.





They love these scones.

And I must admit, they are good.





They make the best breakfast,

and an equally delicious dessert!

It does make me feel a little better making them...and eating them! ;)


CHOCOLATE CHIP SCONES

2 cups flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup chocolate chips
1 & 1/3 cups whipping cream

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in bowl. Add chocolate chips. Blend in whipping cream with a fork or spatula, adding 1-2 Tbsp. extra whipping cream, if necessary. When mixed, turn out onto a floured surface and knead several times. Pat into a 10 inch diameter, and cut into triangles. (You can also use a round cookie cutter instead, if you like!) Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 11-13 minutes. Eat and enjoy! :)





Thank you for stopping by!


Blessings,

Jenni

This is one of those times I wish I could reach into the computer screen and grab what I see! One of those scones would be mine, all mine, as I'm sure they're as delicious as they look.

Great job with your kitchen, it's so cute and cozy! And also thanks for stopping by my blog recently and leaving me a sweet comment. :)

I just made these. They were the easiest scones I have ever made. I did substitute ground steel cut oats and flax seed for half of the flour and added almond flavoring and then my four year old wanted them green so I colored them green. Thank you so much for this! This recipe will be a staple at our house.

I didn't have whipping cream so I chose substitutes that I came up with because of another scone recipe I made:

1 stick butter
1/3 cup buttermilk
1 egg
